I am a blogger but I decided to do a Vlog lately because of the rapid change of needs in online media. My readers preferred watching videos rather than reading my article. Indeed, Vlog is more interactive. Joining in a Vlog World is not that easy for me. It takes courage and sacrifice to run a Youtube Channel especially I am a full time employee.
Blog is totally different from Vlog because in Blog- you can seek perfection through editing the photos and editing the articles before you publish. To be honest, you can pretend in your Blog post but in Vlog, you have to be yourself because viewers are now wiser in watching and subscribing channel. It is a rough transition for me but I still have to be flexible especially in a fast pacing world – online users are lazy to read articles ; they opted watching videos instead.
In the Philippines, Vlog is very fresh. In fact as a Vlogger I’m really having hard time recording outdoor video since security guards consider it as a security threat. Recording video and talking in front your camera is very awkward because people will stare on you while doing it in public - they find it so strange that someone is talking to the camera; unlike doing selfie Filipinos are used to it.
